a meme sunday it is!

Okay so I'd taken the easy way out when Adam tagged me the other day,,, and felt kinda bad about the whole wiggling out of making an effort... then Neome went and tagged me for the same thing... so okaylah, I figured I'd go ahead and try to re-do this weird meme,,, here goes!

SIX WEIRD THINGS ABOUT ME

  1. "Help, I'm a man trapped in a woman's body!!!" okay, not really... but I'm certainly no "girly girl" either! Sure, in public I'm more than aware of social niceties, but in "safe" locations/situations [i.e. at apartment, with Kosh] I can, and do, produce auditory, vibratory [and odoriferous!] emanations from upper and lower cavities to rival any typical guy, LoL! On a related note, I have no patience for people who think you're not really a woman if you don't wear make-up / heels / skirts - I am who I am, after all! And being feminine doesn't necessarily mean being "girly" anyway. So there!

  2. I get choked up and actually have to blink back tears when listening to the "Once More, With Feeling!" soundtrack of that Buffy episode. Even weirder? The song[s] that choke me up differ depending on whether I'm watching the episode itself or just listening to the songs on the iPodShuffle. If it's the former, it's definitely when Spike steps in to stop Buffy from dancing herself into a crisp, when he mournfully sings about "Life isn't bliss, life is just this, it's liiiiiviiiiing; ... the pain that you feel, you only can heal by liiiiviiiing....". And if it's just the auditory experience? Well, then that's when I'm imagining/reliving scenes from the movie, and what moves me most in that situation? The reprise of Standing/Under Your Spell by Tara and Giles, where Tara decides to break up with Willow, and Giles decides to force Buffy to step up. And while it's not in the tearjerking category, hearing Buffy's theory about "what can't we face if we're together..." gives me the shivers...

  3. But it's not *just* the sad stuff: one would find it VERY weird how gleefully I reenact scenes/dialogues from the episode, and how much enjoyment I derive from things like that demon getting stabbed but still having time to sing a line of two before keeling over: "She's not half the girl she - owwwww!"; Buffy singing about things not "... penetrating my [pause] heart", when she's doing what else but staking a vamp thru the heart, LoL! And those two? Just from the FIRST song! I totally love the rock/metal "Bunnies" song in the middle of "I've got a theory" And how's about when Spike's singing grumpily about "I hope she fries, I'm free if that b*tch dies" followed immediately by the line "I better help her out" in a desperate puppy dog manner? And a woman pleading against a parking ticket telling the cop that she's not wearing underwear? And having EIGHTEEN seconds devoted to a man celebrating that the cleaners "Got the Mustard Out!"?? Ah, yes, totally up my alley: I have pretty much the entire soundtrack, no, *episode* committed to memory!

  4. And seeing how TWO weird items are part of the Buffy episode/sountrack, that should indicate yet another weird thing about me: that when I get "into" something, I *really* *really* get "into" that something! Keeping to a soundtrack theme, another example would be my going out and buying the soundtrack to "A Nightmare Before Christmas" immediately after catching the movie in the theaters. And never got tired of playing it over and over and over and over. I can sing along to pretty much *all* the songs: in fact, we caught it on tv the other day, and I was singing along of course,,, and Kosh switched the captioning *off* to test me : I passed with flying colors, LoL!.

  5. My sense of humor is definitely unusual - the most obscure thing can set me off in gales laughter. Or perhaps it's that particular pun, or non sequitur, or whatever. And many times, it's about all Kosh can do to just look at me, shaking his head wondering what sort of weirdo he's married, LoL! No lah, actually he gets it too, but just doesn't *quite* react to it as enthusiastically as I do. Example of what sets me off? In the Pinky & The Brain piece "When Mice Ruled the Earth" Pinky lets loose a pun - scene cuts to Wakko playing a rim shot on a drum set, in reaction to that pun - scene cuts back to Pinky who reacts to the rim shot: "What was that??!" The clincher is Brain then sardonically dismissing it as "engine knock". And I now *use* "engine knock" as a synonym for a pun, teehee!

  6. "Help, I'm actually two very different people trapped in one body!!!" Seriously, I am a study in dichotomy. It's all situational, but wow, what extremes I harbor within me. I am the most outgoing, brash, loud character in the room, yet I am also the quiet observer preferring to amuse herself by watching the other characters play out their acts... I am the vibrant enthusiastic overflowing-with-ideas executive at work, or I am the sullen sniper killing the mood of the meeting with my attitude. I am the aloof daughter / cousin / niece who just can't relate to family members, yet I am also the warm and caring friend who would drop everything to run to the aid of said friends. Essentially, I have many layers [like an ogre, yes.. or an onion, Lol!], and which layer "shows" depends on the situation I'm in, how I feel, etc etc. But deep down inside? A core of strength that, when tapped, helps to achieve anything i want. The trick is getting to rock-bottom enough to *get* to that core!


Yeah. So there you have it: the weirdness that is me, valid as at Sunday, 1:20pm [btw, took me about 2hrs to get this done!].

Any comments? Any self-taggers?

Have a good weekend, y'all!

Dear legitimate commenters: all comments are welcome! My sincere apologies for making you go through the word verification hurdle, tho.

Dear spammers: please don't bother... I'm just gonna delete any spam that squeaks through word verification anyway, so why not save us both the trouble, eh?

Thanks!

Noritta Samsudin: Case closed? WTF?

I was amazed to read that Datuk Mustapha Abdullah, the city police chief considers the Noritta Samsudin murder case closed. (Click here and here for some articles)

Background
In July 2004, one En Hanif Basree Abd Rahman was acquitted and discharged by the court on the murder of Noritta. Of course, the months leading up to that ruling made for gross reading in the local newspapers… Early on I decided to just not read the papers, as it was obvious that the murder victim, who seems to have been a high-class callgirl, was the one being judged. I’m certain I did the right thing, for as time went by, more and more people started complaining about the level of detail being reported by the papers. Details about tears in the vagina, and age thereof seemed to be the focus of the court, rather than on the clients. Then again, from early on it was rumoured that many VIPs were among the victim’s “customers”, hence the blinkered focus on the victim rather than her clients. And the clients who…

BOH Seri Songket flavored teas

For many a year, boxes of BOH's Seri Songket flavored tea have served as handy buah tangans for relatives and friends in Switzerland and the USA, providing exotic teas in an exquisite bit of packaging. I'd not tasted any of these teas for myself, though, so this time around on my trip to Malaysia I made it a point to get me a few boxes of my own.

I picked three: Earl Grey with Tangerine; Passion Fruit; and Lime & Ginger; and have tasted two out of the three so far. According to Moomykin, the unlikely Lychee Rose combination is surprisingly good, so I'll grab that next time. Other flavors available in theory are Cinnamon; Clove & Cardamom; Mango; and Vanilla.

Review of the Seri Songket Passion Fruit flavored tea:
I've had this twice so far.

When you open the sachet, the smell/flavor is rather overpowering. But it all disappears when the teabag is steeped in hot water.

The first time, I used one bag to make 4 cups of tea. It seemed a touch watery, and tasted j…

It's been a while...

It's been so long.

Here's what's been going on. I had one kid, then another. Thing One / Nova was my first ever exposure to a kid. I'd never changed a diaper until he came along, and even then I deferred to the hubs or the NICU nurses before I forced myself to overcome that ?fear?.

He is my first. So I always wondered during tough times, was it just me? Or was it also him?

Turns out, it was us both.


He starts First Grade this August. He's currently being (re-)evaluated for an IEP (Individualised Education Plan). ADHD. ODD. ASD. SPD. The journey to these labels was a long one. And still ongoing because I don't think we have it quite right yet. But the labels help. I fought against getting labels. But now I seek them. Anything to help understand. Never in a million years would I have foreseen me medicating my kids. Yet here I am, seeking new meds, getting him a genetic test that should help identify which medications should help him, since the usual suspects see…
